    Such cases have been reported on here, but the maximum any extension can extend the possession date to is 6 weeks. So if 14 days was already given, the max extension will be 4 weeks. If 6 weeks was already given, then the judge will be unable to extend it further.

    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1980/51/section/89
    (1)Where a court makes an order for the possession of any land in a case not falling within the exceptions mentioned in subsection (2) below, the giving up of possession shall not be postponed (whether by the order or any variation, suspension or stay of execution) to a date later than fourteen days after the making of the order, unless it appears to the court that exceptional hardship would be caused by requiring possession to be given up by that date; and shall not in any event be postponed to a date later than six weeks after the making of the order.

    IIRC from your other post, you are trying to avoid eviction over Christmas - take a read of this... http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...ty-for-4-weeks

      This is pretty much me, although my agent is very good and doesn't need much "rein".

      They have a high street presence, which tenants like (makes the agent more real) and have multiple people to answer phones.
      And they have a mostly female staff, which is a big plus for ...

      Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

      Paperwork shouldn't be an issue in claiming unpaid rent.
      Unpaid rent is usually easy to prove - the tenant's paid some and has obviously been renting something.

      The issue is usually that the tenant doesn't have the money they owe.

      The lack of agent and paperwork will...

      We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

      Tenant moved in...

      As said above, unless being a landlord has been a childhood dream (weird if it were), i vote to sell and move on. A lot of experienced LL's are selling up anyway due to a multitude of rubbish from the govt, in your position, simply reap the reward of your late fathers good financial decisions and enjoy...

      by jtufty
      Hi,

      I rent a property. The initial 6 months of the AST ends in Jan 2022. The tenant is very nice and she asked yesterday if she can stay on for another 6 months.

      Is it a simple case of just giving her another AST contract to sign? Im sure it is, but wondered if theres anything...

      Why "in light of the minimal tenancy paperwork" do you think you will have a difficult time retrieving the money owed from the tenant?

      As above, check the Section 21 is valid, see link to flow chart below. If the Section 21 is valid and the tenant is still in the property then...

      My property portfolio has always been managed by agents, originally through necessity (I was a long way away), latterly through choice (I don't want to be available 24/7). I use small independent agencies and I keep them on a tight rein - but it works for me! I like to have that distance between me...
